The May issue of Gramophone is packed full of fascinating features to enjoy. Our cover story, by James McCarthy, explores the way that recording has transformed the means by which new music reaches new listeners and how the latest technology is offering composers more opportunities than ever before, including interviews with composers John Luther Adams, Colin Matthews and conductor Nicholas Collon.
Elsewhere, Geoffrey Norris speaks to conductor Paavo Järvi about his crazy recording schedule, David Vickers explores the fascinating partnership of Handel and Milton, there's an in-depth survey of recordings of Byrd's Masses, and a top-10 recommendation of the best Welsh orchestral music to buy. And of course, no Gramophone issue would ever be complete without its comprehensive reviews pages, compiled by our expert critics and covering all the latest classical music releases.
The May issue is with subscribers now and will go on general sale on April 24. To find out more about subscribing to Gramophone visit our Subscriptions page.
